Since May 2019, Le Wagon in Germany has been certified as vocational training by the Bundesagentur für Arbeit (or Job Center). This means that anyone who is registered in Germany and is unemployed (or soon to be) is eligible to receive a Bildungsgutschein (education voucher) and learn to code on our course, entirely financed by the German government. Ever since, we have trained 80 people in Berlin and are planning on accepting more candidates for our next bootcacmps in Berlin and Munich. Make sure to apply before places run out.

But how different is it doing the course with a Bildungsgutschein than someone who funded it themselves? In this interview, we'll take a closer look at two of our alumni who did the course using the Bildungsgutschein!

Craving problem solving, how I found job satisfaction via Le Wagon

After working at an accounting firm as a CPA for 7 years, I gradually realised that I needed a career change that gives more challenges and satisfaction. The number one thing that I enjoyed most in my previous career was problem solving and I wanted more of that, so I joined Le Wagon!

Meet Mia, originally from Northern California and alumni from batch #244 (April - June 2019) in Berlin. She studied Political Ecology at UC Berkeley before backpacking around the world and then working in Education Technology. After searching for a way to combine creativity, analysis, and a passion for building, she decided to join Le Wagon so she could turn her ideas into reality.
